                                       Centenary Camp
                                               25th – 28th May 2007
                                                    Linnet Clough
Over the weekend of Friday 25th – Monday 28th May, the whole of Scouting in the UK
will be camping. Ok, that may be hard to believe, but this weekend is the official camps
to celebrate the Centenary of Scouting. Up and down the country, in all areas of the UK,
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers will be celebrating 100 years of Scouting, and
Didsbury Viking Explorer Scouts will be no different!

The Greater Manchester East Centenary Camp has been years in the planning, and for
those Cubs who remember the ‘Commonwealth’ Camp a few years back, this will be a
camp on massive scale… with the activities to go with it. As I type this information, I’m
still quite in the dark myself about just what activities will be going on over the 4 days of
the camp. What I do know is that over £5000 has been spent on deposits for activities,
and there will be a massive range of activities for all our members to try.

There will be activities from morning to night, all throughout the bank holiday weekend,
along with three nights of camping, and fun activities with the members of the group.
There will be three different ‘sub camps’ and the districts that make up Greater
Manchester East will be split into these sub camps. We are in the Curlew Sub Camp,
along with 600 other members. Already there are over 2000 Scout attending, making
this the biggest ever event in the history of Greater Manchester East.

Unfortunately this camp is at a bad time for Explorers due to exams, however it is the
first week of the half-term holidays!

You have two options, or more, as Explorers, they are as follows:

Whole Weekend

You can come for the whole weekend, and experience an amazing time! This will be the
biggest camp you will ever be on as Scouts apart from the Jamboree!

The cost for the whole weekend will be approximately £50 this includes all activities,
food, accommodation and insurance!
